The email I received said I can "approve" my domain transfer out request on the overview page, but that page doesn't acknowledge a transfer has begun

Same issue as this 2019 post but it’s locked

(backticks don’t seem to be enough to prevent the overzealous link prevention)

The post title is the full issue, but for context the two domains I’d like to transfer are to someone else’s registrar, not my own account on a different registrar. It would be nice if I could help my colleague speed the process along.

Full email text:

Outbound Domain Transfer Initiated


Domain: (omitted)

Cloudflare Registrar received an authenticated request to transfer the domain listed above to another registrar.

You do not need to respond to this message to confirm your transfer away. Cloudflare will automatically release the domain to your new registrar five days after your request. Want to finish the transfer earlier? You can manually approve the request immediately in the Overview page of the Cloudflare dashboard for your domain.

If you want to cancel this transfer and stay with Cloudflare, you must visit the Overview page of the dashboard and select “Reject Transfer Out” from your options within the next five days.

On behalf of the Cloudflare team, we are sorry that we will no longer be providing registrar services for your domain. If there were things we could have done better, please let us know at [email protected]. We’re always working to improve this product and appreciate your input.

We are committed to making the process to transfer out transparent and simple. For additional assistance, refer to

The Cloudflare Registrar team
